Tinker and Alchemy have found new homes

Alchemy – Ryder Dragon

Ryder dragons can sit upon your shoulder while you go about your adventures. The feet should be slightly cupped to fit upon your shoulder, drape the tail down your back and up and over to your opposite shoulder for balance.

Night Sprites – Tinker and Tinder

Alchemy and Tinker have been released from reserve I will list them for sale.

Night-Sprites have been specially hatched to be more magical, they love glitter, and all that glitters!  Most have faerie wings, a few take after a more distant dragon ancestor and have dragon wings.  They are attracted to sparkly things, especially white blossoms in moonlight.

They can be seen gathering nectar from night blooming flowers , although a few have mistaken Night-sprites for  large moths or bats ….never fear they do not bite…too much.

Mezzanotte (Midnight in Italian)

Mezzanotte is a Nipper Dragon with custom glass eyes,  bought and shipped to me by the dragon  purchaser.

I am thinking of using glass eyes for a few of the largest dragons, it would be more work- getting the eyes set into a head requires washers and wire or cotter pins,  but the effect is amazing. (these are an artist’s custom printed eyes and are lovely)

While I do know how to make similar eyes, printing eyes that are  glued onto the back of a glass cabochon, then set into a bezel backing with a loop on the back…. but it would add  to the final cost.   Buying them from Etsy would save me time, but still add $20 to the cost of a dragon…I’m leaning towards just buying them for special dragons.

Moon-Wing has found her forever home

Moon-Wing has a green tie-dye body
Moon Wind has an all green body
These are the safety eyes I made. Time consuming, but they look amazing
Luna moth wings, these ere sewn and then hand stained, double sided. They didn’t work for the moon dragons and were set aside, but they work great for the Reivers.

I had tried making Luna wings last year and had set them aside on a shelf.          While sewing some green Reivers, I looked over, saw the wings, and – serendipity! The Luna-Reivers were hatched!  I have had an amazing response to these and will plan on making a few more, possibly more butterfly designs as well.

Taboo the Drat

This is Taboo, a Tiger -Drat – cat dragon hybrid. What a magical creature!

His body is made from a soft tiger fur, and I used a soft black Minky fabric for the belly, outer ears, horns and back spine points.

I used a matching tiger striped fabric for the inner wings, inner ears, and paw pads.

I hand crafted the yellow eyes, and since the fur was so fluffy I seated the eyes in black eyelids.

This drat has dragon ears, with white ear spots, and a black fox mane. I also added some whiskers.

Taboo is fluffy and soft to touch, and just to keep smaller creatures safe I gave him a collar and bell.
